If you had a chance over the holiday weekend to check us out you may have come across a mixology featuring Basil Hayden’s Bourbon used as a base for a Manhattan inspired by the hit show Boardwalk Empire. In keeping with the new course of action, the team over at Basil Hayden’s has developed their True Bloody Mary, a Bloody Mary inspired by the bloodsucking HBO powerhouse True Blood. So if you like to partake in an early morning cocktail this is certainly a version that will eviscerate you’re senses and wake you up from you’re long nocturnal slumber!
